MEMBER for King Paula Luethen is likely to be a major reason behind the State Government’s bus overhaul backflip, after the Liberal MP took the bold step of opposing her own party’s policy.

GAWLER bus commuters will see no changes to local services later this year, after public outcry saw the State Government scrap its controversial overhaul of Adelaide’s bus system.
MAJOR changes to Gawler’s local bus services, including three routes becoming on-demand only, are set to be included in a significant overhaul of Adelaide’s public transport network.
